Serie B leading scorer, Simone Mazzocchi, has said Tottenham star, Harry Kane, is his ‘role model.’
The Reggiana striker has three goals in the opening four games of the season.
Pordenone’s Davide Diaw, Venezia’s Francesco Forte and Lecce’s Massimo Coda have managed just as much.
“I didn’t expect to be so decisive but I didn’t want to have the excuse that I had to adapt to the championship,” he told Il Resto del Carlino.
Mazzocchi, a product of Atalanta academy, is on loan from Serie C side Sudtirol but La Dea have an option to re-sign him at the end of the season.
“We attackers are just numbers, if you don’t score you can lose your chance. When I play I am inspired by [Harry] Kane, a complete striker capable not only of scoring. He also recovers the ball and provides assist,” the 22-year-old added.
“My strengths are headers and bicycle-kick shots but I have to improve in the one against one. Massimiliano Alvini is a speacial coach, we work well with him,” he concluded.
